Food was average, service was very good. I was overwhelmed by the food, it wasn't as flavorful as it should have been. The pork in the dish I ordered was very dry.

We stopped in for lunch while on vacation. Very good authentic Mexican food, is there any other in Las Cruces? Hey if you are going to enjoy the great culture and food of the desert southwest, then this place should be on your list. Very good service, food, atmosphere, all for a fair price. Oh and they give you a... More

We were sat at a table within 5 minutes. Chips and salsa and menus were immediately brought to the table. Our drink and food orders were taken quickly. Service was excellent, timely and without any mistakes. Great calm atmosphere for a dinner with some friends.

Seriously, this may be odd but Chilitos has the best bacon ever, and really good coffee. We love coming here for breakfast, the salsa is great, omelets and more traditional New Mexican food is great but the bacon can't be beat. Also the servers during breakfast hours are excellent.

The Margaritas were great, the food was good, but not our favorite for Las Cruces...They do have chimichangas which a lot of the local places, don't.

As a traveler, I came across Chilito's for my evening meal. It was a pleasant surprise. The fajita salad was good with a large portion. While it could have used sour cream, for the price it was quite good. The sauce is a bit on the spicy side, but it is a matter of taste.

After stopping in Las Cruces for the night, we went on a search for some good food. Did we ever luck out. The Chilitos restaurant was perfect. Great New Mexico Mexican. All the food we had was awesome. Wish they were located a bit closer to Sahuarita, AZ Next time we go their way, believe me we will stop. Service... More

I had about the best Huevos Rancheros I ever ate. It was so good we went back the next week and ordered them again.
